Title: Nonlinear transmission of single-wall carbon nanotubes in heavy water at a wavelength of 1.54 {mu}m and self-mode locking in a Er{sup 3+} : glass laser obtained using a passive nanotube switch

Abstract

The nonlinear transmission of light by single-wall carbon nanotube suspensions in D{sub 2}O at a wavelength of 1.54 {mu}m is studied. For the 250-ns probe pulse and the 40-MW cm{sup -2} maximum intensity of radiation incident on a cell, the decrease in the absorption coefficient was 3.6 cm{sup -1} while the absorption coefficient in a weak field was 17 cm{sup -1}. Q-switching and self-mode locking were obtained in a pulsed Er{sup 3+} : glass laser by using a cell with the nanotube suspension as a passive filter. (nonlinear optical phenomena)
